I purchased this lens to test its suitabilty in the kayak, but it's too
danged big!

KEH would call this lens "ugly".  It looks to me like it was used in a
marine environment; there are stains & miscelaneous discolorations on the
coatings, some screw heads have some corrosion and the diaphragm blades
have patches of oxidation - but it works! Focus is smooth, the focus drag
button works as it should, and the diaphragm, while not buttery-smooth,
works well.


(sample photos were made at full aperture)

The Televit is for Visoflex which means it can be easily adapted to other
camera brands.  Asking $300 plus shipping, please contact me off-list at
wildlightphoto (at) earthlink (dot) net
